This is the post that I delayed from earlier in the week. I've been thinking about it all the while and yet I am still not sure quite how it will turn out. I think that it will just evolve over the next day or two...
There a few times, when one hears for the first time a new artist or act of which one was previously completely unaware and the first instinct is simply WTF? Festivals are happy hunting grounds for this... indeed albums by two artists that first took me this way have already appeared in this year's lists of albums.
THESE STREETS, The Graphite Set from Louis W Hudson on Vimeo.
It would be wrong to include any act other than on merit. If that happens to be one from not so far distant then that is all the better.
In all probability this thread will have a second post, just as the album thread will have a third. Good times.
